Found a (much) later take on the 147, looks like a similar frequency/route but with extra diversions at Willagee and extended the short distance to Booragoon

Wasnt deleted until the Mandurah train opened

Looking at the 212 it appears to be a predecessor of the western end of the now defunct through routed services 8 10 and 12.

The then
252 was a predecessor of the recently deleted 375 (it ran a small section of it) which ran prior to the construction of Mirrabooka Bus Station. I recall Mirrabooka shops being on their lonesome in the middle of nowhere with the only access via Mirrabooka Ave as Ravenswood Dve ended just after Majella Rd.

I recall a service from Karinyup to Nollamara. 100% certainty and I thought it was 252. But a service definitely operated

You've been saying that for ages - damned if I can recall it though.

I'm 100% sure it only ran Nollamara to Mirrabooka as a "shopper" service

252 did run Nollamara to Mirrabooka Sq. (prior to bus station opening). Prior to this it was Nollamara SC to Medhurst Cr. 351 was a peak hrs Perth to Medhurst Cr

Shopper service is there. I was referring to the earlier version of 252 which terminated with the 351 at Medhurst Cr!

They're not obscure. They're simply some of the routes that were deleted due to the commencement of services on the Mandurah line.

Obscure / forgotten is one that just came to mind.

840 Fremantle to Banjup which almost mimics the 140 back in the day and the
841 Fremantle to Southlake

Both ran once a day and extended to and from John Curtin senior high

Shoudy, the guys are right....it's more about obscure or forgotten simply due, for example to an either infrequent or quirky nature of a particular service. This isn't strictly the criterion used but it quite often happens to be the case.

Fair enough. I'm not sure if I have a TT - have the map though.

I only have the 252 prior to that (1960s) Perth - Nollamara

Does anyone have the 120 series prior to Kwinana BS?
I remember the odd numbered services went via Medina/Calista Avs and the even numbered ones straight to Rockingham.
I recall 121/122 to Rockingham. 123/124 to Safety Bay. 125/126 to Warnbro

Also
Kwinana town services 127/128/129/130
129 was after hours Orelia to Rockingham

Any clarification/better knowledge appreciated

I'm sure I've posted up in this thread earlier. I'll recheck and post if necessary when time permits - although it looks like the first 11 pages in this thread have had the images deleted by imageShack. I'll gradually restore over time.....

Was there a 117 to Mandurah and 119 to Kwinana?

noting also the 116 to City via Murdoch Uni with 166 being the express from Rockingham.

Remember wrongly boarding a 117 in Fremantle as a kid hoping to go to Rockingham and then to Waikiki. Ended up getting off near Dixon Rd and walking to the bus station. There not being a Safety Bay bus (123 & 125?) soon, I ended up walking, arriving just before dark.

113 Fremantle to Kwinana via Wattle up
115 Kwinana to Mandurah
116 East Perth to Rockingham
117 Fremantle to Mandurah
119 Fremantle to Kwinana
120 Fremantle to Rockingham
121 Rockingham to Cooloongup
122 Rockingham to Rockingham beach later Kwinana Bus station
123 Rockingham to Safety Bay
124 Rockingham to Shoal water
125 Kwinana to Warnbro
126 Fremantle to Rockingham
127 Kwinana to Parmelia
128 Parmelia to Masonic Homes
129 Kwinana to Parmelia
130 Kwinana to Parmelia
132 Rockingham to Rockingham Beach
133 Kwinana to Safety Bay
134 Kwinana to Cooloongup
144 Kwinana to Warnbro
166 East Perth to Rockingham

Note in the early 90s these all changed dramatically a few times but we're core after Rockingham Bust Station was built and before closure of the original Kwinana Bus Station. I even have timetables for them which I also believe VL6MT may have as well

On Route 116 the original route was Hay street, Hill Street, Adelaide Tce, St Georges Tce, William St, Kwinana Fwy, Canning Hwy, Risely Street, Leach Hwy, Stock Rd, Rockingham Rd, Kwinana B/S, Rockingham Rd, Patterson Rd, Ennis Ave, Council Ave, Rockingham B/S.

The issue back then was Patterson Rd was heavily served between Kwinana BS and Rockingham BS by numerous routes with no population density.

No timetables but I think those routes ran in early - mid '90s.
